Flexibility and Communication are very important in the First Step of Software Development. Yes I think prototyping is the right approach here.

Hey Chris-

If you haven't seen it, check out Preston Smith's book, "Flexible Product Development". It covers the principles of Agile development and extends them to product. It's a good read. As you probably know, not designing to fixed specifications is a core principle in Agile.

Congrats on the book, can't wait to read it. I'm writing one myself :) Would love to tell you more about it, perhaps bounce some ideas off you.

One of the ideas I've been working with, for example, is "Plant seeds, not forests": http://www.richardsona.com/main/2008/9/5/lessons-in-innovation-from-spore.html
